The EOS Group stands for an extensive network of partners and holdings and is supporting promising start-ups. Apart from EOS GmbH and EOS Inc., the EOS Group owns a wide range of companies worldwide. They concentrate primarily on developing and manufacturing customer- and application-specific materials and secondly on sector- and application-specific AM solutions and therefore on establishing customer-specific “AM-based digital factories." With the aim of promoting industrial 3D printing as one of the leading manufacturing technologies worldwide, the EOS Group is also concentrating on all the related steps, i.e. the upstream and downstream processing of the parts as well as hardware and software applications. The interaction of these various steps is creating a broad number of manufacturing solutions along the entire industrial value chain. Dr. Hans J. Langer is CEO and Chairman of the EOS Group.
